Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Saul David Alinsky (1909 - 1972)

The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people. When an action is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear, and retreat.
Quotes from Mao, Castro, and Che Guevara . . . are as germane to our highly technological, computerized society as a stagecoach on a jet runway at Kennedy airport.
The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.
The third rule is: Whenever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
Once you accept your own death, all of a sudden you are free to live.
Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
